Despite widespread usage of ionizing radiation in medical diagnosis and treatment methods, development of radio-protective agents is important in modulating normal tissue damages. The inherent toxicity of synthetic compounds and the confirmation of low toxicity of natural compound in accordance with long – term usage of medicine have led many researchers to investigate the radio-protective abilities of natural compounds. Hesperidin (HES) is a flavanone glycoside, belonging to the flavonoid family found in human diet abundantly and noted for its many beneficial effects. However, hesperidin has fewer protective effects than synthetic compounds and less toxicity and possibility of oral administration. That is why it can be offered as a suitable radio-protector in radiotherapy patients, radiation workers, astronauts, and the public.
